RICHMOND, Va. - Rain all day Wednesday pushed the University of Pennsylvania baseball team's game with Virginia Commonwealth University from an orginal start time of 3 p.m. back to an 8:15 p.m. start.
With alight rain still falling at first pitch, both head coaches agreed to resume play if it was halted due to weather. Neither would know it would be due to fog, rather than rain.
Penn took a 1-0 lead in thesixth inning, on an Austin Bossart sacrifice fly scoring Ryan Mincher, who doubled to begin the inning, just before fog began to creep over the playing surface at The Diamond.
After VCU took the lead in thebottom of the sixthinning on a three-run home run, and extended its lead to 5-1 in the seventh as the fog thickened, the field becamecompletely enveloped in the top of the eighth inning.
The Quakers and Rams will resume play tomorrow at 2 p.m. with Penn up to bat in the top of the eighth inning with a man on second base and one out, trailing 5-1.
